LC Subject Headings:
The object of this publication is to supply a want which has been long felt, not only by strangers arriving in the city, but by numbers of our own citizens. The immense amount of business arising from the prosecution of the war has been distributed among a large number of departments, bureaux, etc., which are located in so many different places that persons having business at some of them are unable to find them, except by persistent inquiry. This little book will tell them where the various offices are situated.
It may be that we have omitted several offices which should be inserted, but our design is to publish successive editions, from time to time, with corrections and additions, until we have rendered the DIRECTORY as complete and valuable as we desire to make it. We ask our friends to apprise us of any errors or omissions they may discover.
We also request heads of departments, bureaux, etc., to furnish us with copies of such regulations concerning the modus operandi and routine of business, etc., in their respective offices, as may serve, by the publicity thereof, to lessen the interruptions and inquiries to which they are now subject in consequence of the lack of this information, in a form available to the public.
The attention of Merchants is called to the advantages which "THE STRANGER'S GUIDE," as an advertising medium, possesses over any other publication now issued. Being printed and bound neatly, and of a convenient size for the pocket, and containing important and useful information, it will necessarily command the attention of all strangers visiting Richmond, either for pleasure or profit.
"THE STRANGER'S GUIDE " will be issued monthly, with such changes as necessity may require, and such improvement from month to month, as the time will admit of.
In the absence of a map it may be proper to remark for the information of strangers, that the streets of Richmond are laid off at right angles to each other, with one or two exceptions. The principal streets are those extending from east to west. The "cross streets" extend from the river to the northern boundary line of the city, and are numbered in regular order from west to east. North of and parallel with Main street, in the order mentioned, are Franklin, Grace, Broad, Marshall, Clay, and Leigh streets; South of Main, and also parallel with it, are Cary, Canal and Byrd streets. The Capitol Square, which is situated near the centre of the city, is bounded on the north by Capitol street, which is parallel with and near to Broad street; on the south by Bank street; on the west by 9th street, and on the east by Governor street, and a part by 12th. Governor street (formerly a county road,) is irregular. It is 13th street south of Main, but by its inclination to the west acending the hill, its continuation becomes 12th street north of Broad street. A stranger can readily find any place,
whose situation is described in the DIRECTORY, by bearing in mind that the numbers of the "cross streets " diminish as he goes "up town" or west, and increase when he goes in the opposite direction. The names and numbers of streets are (or should be) inscribed on boards attached to the corner houses. The Capitol Square breaks the continuity of two streets, Franklin and Grace.
The buildings in which the principal public offices are situated, mostly front upon the streets which form the boundaries of the Capitol Square.
The "Treasury Building," a granite structure, formerly known as the "Custom House," fronts on Main and Bank streets, midway between 10th and 11th streets. The principal entrance is on Bank street.
The General Post Office Building, (formerly "Goddin's Building,") is a stuccoed edifice at the corner of Bank and 11th streets. Entrance on 11th street.
The "War Department Building" (formerly "Mechanics' Institute,") fronts on 9th street, opposite Bank street. It is surmounted by a large and conspicuous observatory.
The State Court House is situated in the Capitol Square, at the intersection of Franklin and 12th streets.
The City Hall fronts on Broad and Capitol streets, with a side entrance on 11th street.
